How can we use tech to help under 18s get the most from the web and stay safe?

Kids will always want to meet up people they have met online whatever you tell them. This idea is to provide a central meeting place eg a funky cafe either existing or new for them to meet. Here a third party will check the id of the 2 people meeting before they are allowed to go off.

First one would be in london and somewhere"cool" where they would want to meet.

They would both have to bring ID and the third party would have access to crb or something. If one party is older or in anyway dodgy they can be checked/ parents informed/police or advised just to meet in the cafe.

WIth cctv in the cafe dodgy people would be put off meeting there.

You could give a token or "all clear" documentation to someone that they can then show their parents if they want to meet up again.

stops random old people meeting kids in stations etc. kids have nothing to loose - maybe offer free latte etc with every meet.
